I always attend Breakbulk to catch up with industry contacts, attend the discussions and stay up with the industry. Breakbulk provides an excellent opportunity for me to do all of this within a couple of days.
Catherine Wolfe Logistics Manager Import/Export Compliance, Bechtel Equipment Operations Inc.
I find the exhibition floor is most helpful for me so I can connect with colleagues and network for business and personal needs. Being able to meet with so many people at one time is so much more efficient than meeting individually throughout the year.
